Hockey: Pakistan beat India 4-3 in Final

Pakistan lost to India in the league rounds, but won the all crucial final to claim gold in the South Asian Games. These are not first string sides for both countries, as the top players are preparing for the upcoming World Cup.
India took the lead early in the match. In the 26th minute, India’s Ragunath hit Pakistan’s Zubair with a stick. A major brawl broke out and the umpires called in the local Bangladesh police. Pakistan got their act together later and equalized in the second half. Normal and extra time ended in 1-1, but Pakistan got the better of India in the penalty strokes. Congratulations to the Pakistan side for claiming gold by defeating their arch-rivals. Victory would have been even sweeter after Ragunath’s hit on Zubair. Well done, Pakistan. Hope the top national squad downs India in the World Cup Opener as well.
